A raiding party of police and soldiers found a brand new Chiang Mai hotel with plenty of tourists – the only thing missing was a license to operate.
The raid came as the governor of the northern province has issued orders for more checks in the wake of the Malin Sky bar incident.
Raided yesterday was the Pause and Play Hotel in Chang Pheuak district. A quick check revealed many of the 54 rooms at the four story property were occupied for about 2,000 baht a night, reports Manager Online
But the license was nowhere to be found.
The manager was hauled off to the station and soon the owner, Titaporn Traisuphakit, 57, arrived to say she had applied for the license but been told there was a big backlog and it would take some time.
She wanted everything to be legal but had still opened in the meantime. So the authorities shut her down, albeit temporarily.
Manager online reported that raids on illegal hotels are expected to continue after orders issued by the governor of the province in the wake of incidents at the Malin Sky bar the other week when a major general’s son was beaten up.
That bar was found to be operating without the necessary permits.Facebook.
